Escape Station – POLICE INTERROGATION
Escape Station is located on Queen St. West, in the Beaches area of Toronto. It was our second room of the day with Team Awesome, after a great ER rant session.
Creativity and Design (aka its Fancy level): – Was it inventive ? Did it fit the theme?
Score : 2.5 of 5.0
The room was pretty empty which it worked for and against them. To be fair in an interrogation room, you’d hope that it was empty and not riddled with lockboxes, and that was what we saw. However the lack of props and set design also made the room predictable and somewhat underwhelming. Also when asking “why” certain things were in the room, we couldn’t justify it to the overall storytelling.
Bells and Whistles: Was it just lockboxes throughout the Room?
Score: N/A of 5.0
There wasn’t tech used in the room, so we have nothing to point out.
Intuitive (aka Frustration Level): Was it solvable? or Did you have to be inside the creators mind to solve it?
Score: 3.5 of 5.0
The puzzles were hit and miss. For the most part our group understood the puzzles, yet there were times it would have been good to provide more direction. We did get out of the room in good time, however the room felt very short.
The hint system uses a dial-in system (you ring in the GM with a in-game phone), we had no issues with it.
Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?
The Gamemaster was friendly and followed up with our experience.
The price is $25 / person, which felt a bit overpriced for this particular experience.
Overall: Police Interrogation had some high and low parts, but we thought it was more on the low end.
